Messy people all know this stuff, but it is very true and those who are neat should probably see it as well so they don’t judge as much. Many people struggle with clutter because it’s hard to put things away when you lack either space or motivation. Clutter and dirtiness are also different things.
- Jennifer McCartney’has written a tongue in cheek book entitled, “The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place.”
- The books premise is that left to their own devices, humans can learn to live with their basic messiness, first by accepting it.
- The book also notes that clutter is evidence of a personality and things are easier to find if they are never put away in the first place.
